chad johnson*Oh well, it wasn’t like we didn’t see it coming.

After all, he’s the one who reportedly said, “I don’t give a f… about my career.”

As we concluded in a previous story on the issue, Chad Johnson might want to be careful of what he wishes for.

Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco,  is also now formerly a Miami Dolphin and his professional football career just might be over, too.

Chad Johnson, the flamboyant free agent wide receiver that the Miami Dolphins hoped would add some star power to a team that has lacked it, was released by the Fins tonight.

The move comes a day after Johnson, 34, was arrested at home by Davie Police in connection with a domestic violence incident.

According to the police report, Johnson head-butted new wife Evelyn Lozada, who’s on VH-1′s “Basketball Wives,” and screamed “I don’t give a f… about my career” as she ran away to a neighbor’s house!

Although team officials have yet to comment on the record, one Dolphins source said Johnson’s locker at camp was just cleaned up.

Gossip Extra first reported this morning that team officials were kicking around the idea of kicking Johnson off even before he was freed from a Broward County slammer on $2,500-bail.
